I used to be mid-level executive with what was then the world's largest hotel company (i.e., Holiday Corporation) and I experienced every kind of hotel in cities all over the world. Neither then nor recently -- until now -- have I experienced a "mom and pop" of the quality of the Gables Motor Lodge in Greymouth, New Zealand. Sparkling clean;... More

Cannot really improve upon all the other reviews as I agree with them. A well kept motel with a friendly and helpful Manager / Owner. Best thing about the Lodge is its proximity to the Monteith brewery!

We arrived at the motel for one night, and were immediately impressed by the standard of the gardens, and general maintenance. The office was clean and tidy, and the host was welcoming, efficient and smartly dressed. The room itself continued with the same theme of being of the same standard as we got from our first impressions. Everything was in... More

We stayed in the Gables Lodge in Greymouth during our tour of the South Island. It was great value for money, the owner was very friendly and helpful and it was great for doing our laundry as well. Great restaurant nearby within walking distance.

The staff were lovely and walked us to our room. Also appreciated being able to borrow movies from the front. The room was furnished nicely and could easily sleep 5. The kitchenette was handy and pretty much everything is closed at 9pm in town. Only thing was that the room smelled musty - the front desk lady was quite apologetic... More

My family and I stayed over on the16.01.14. The place was clean and Ian, the manager was very helpful and knowledgeable. Car park was right infront of our rooms and it's free parking. The lodge is very near to many places of interest- Shantytown, Dorothy falls blow glass factory, Pancake rock and etc. Highly recommended Thank you Ian.

Very friendly reception from owner Ian. Clean, good sized rooms with good amenities and free wifi. Close to everything. Would recommend this friendly family run motel for anyone passing through this part of New Zealand.

We stopped over here before catching train back to Christchurch. It is a very comfortable motel and the staff were very helpful. Rooms are superb and we have certainly no complaints. Would thoroughly recommend. They even drop you down to train station. Fab

We spent two nights in a two-bedroom unit. Sparkling clean kitchen (even the underside of the plug was pristine - yes, we noticed!). Obvious care and attention to detail. Good quality throughout. Supermarket, liquorland, dominos and town pool (with hydroslides) all within a stone's throw. Friendly staff. Would happily stay again.
